Milwaukee, WI - On Friday, a Milwaukee County Circuit Court jury found Hector Lozornio, 40, guilty in two counts for 1st-degree sexual assault of child under 13 (facing 60 years in prison for each count), one count for 1st-degree sexual assault of a child under 12 (facing 60 years in prison), four counts for bail jumping (facing 6 years and up to $10K in fines for each count) and one count for intimidating a witness (facing 10 years in prison and up to $25K), all felony counts. Lozornio is facing up to 196 years in prison and up to $65K in fines when he is sentenced. 
Lozornio is expected back in court on March 18 for a hearing regarding confirmation of the time period the three sexual assaults of a child occurred, according to court records.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) placed a hold on Lozornio as a result of two convictions for 4th-degree sexual assault conviction in 2001. He will be deported to Mexico after completing his sentence. Lozornio has not been sentenced yet on the latest conviction and could receive up to life in prison for his 8 count felony convictions including three counts for sexual assault of a child under 13.
Lozornio had three prior felony child sexual assault charges, but were dismissed on June 8, 2015 and the charges were revised and reinstated on June 14, 2015 with additional charges, according to court records.
Court records show, that Lozornio pled no contest to two misdemeanor counts for 4th-degree sexual assault on December 18, 2001.
The recent criminal complaint states, that Lozornio agreed to take a lie detector test (polygraph exam) about the child molestation and sexual contact allegations filed against him and apparently he failed the test. He also attempted to coerce three witnesses from testifying in court.
